Winter Solstice

Today is the 6th of December and we are 16 days away form the start of winter. you would think it was  here already as every lake here is frozen solid. On that date RA will begin his long climb back towards summer and the days will begin to get longer and I look forward to that. if your lucky enough to be living where there is open water , turn off your PC and go paddle it.  Merry Christmas and all the best in the New Year Cheers, Greg
